Approaching the second year of missing Jake and what would have been his 32nd birthday and Jules’ 4th, we’ve been seeking a way to remember and celebrate his life as well as connect with his friends and bike/music/art community.
Last year, we welcomed his friends and family to a BBQ birthday party. This year, we are creating the Jacobs Scholarship to be awarded to a dedicated courier/cyclist who attends the Cycle Membership World Championship - this year in Montreal.
Jake attended the 2011 World Championship in Warsaw, Poland and it was then we knew his love was cycling and couriering. He also raced in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2013. He loved building bikes and the courier community. His art was often bike-based in theme and he supported Boston Area Sports Entertainment (BASE.) It is the most representative of Jake’s perspectives, and is joining us in launching this program in memory of Jake.
Criteria and details on Jacobs Scholarship to follow soon. (ADD info on Courier Clothing Drive and a link to Go Fund Me?)
